A study from The Scripps Research Institute has unveiled a surprising mechanism that controls brain formation.
A molecule implicated in Alzheimer's disease interferes with brain cells by making them unable to "recycle" the surface receptors that respond to incoming signals.
The action of a small protein that is a major villain in Alzheimer's disease can be counterbalanced with another brain protein, researchers at UT Southwestern Medical Center have found in an animal study.
Researchers discover that the addition of the phosphor molecule to a the NMDA receptor in the brain is a necessary step in memory formation.
Schizophrenia could be caused by faulty signaling in the brain, according to new research published today.
Neurobiologists have discovered a mechanism by which the constantly changing brain retains memoriesâ€”from that dog bite to that first kiss. They have found that the brain co-opts the same machinery by which cells stably alter their genes to specialize during embryonic development.
Researchers at UT Southwestern Medical Center have identified a biochemical switch that affects how neurons fire in a part of the brain associated with learning, findings that may aid in understanding schizophrenia and Alzheimer's disease.
